Yamaha Marine University will begin using electronic media to deliver business management training to its nearly 2,100 dealers, in an effort to reduce costs to dealers.

Starting this March, YMU will deliver a series of seminars via WebEx, a Web-based meeting service that allows YMU instructors to communicate with students using voice and visual presentation such as PowerPoint slides. In addition, YMU will also employ a series of instructional tele-seminars for dealers.

The first tele-seminar will cover new product information and is scheduled for 4 p.m. March 24. Information and details about the first course will be posted today on YMBS.

Yamaha Marine University will host several additional webinars and tele-seminars throughout April and May, covering a variety of dealership management topics.

There will be no cost to the dealer for participating in the YMU webinars and tele-seminars, and Yamaha will soon post a schedule of available business management education topics on YMBS.

Registration will be available on YMU online. In addition, registration will be available by phone through YMU registrar Jennifer Christ at (866) 644-4968.
